Quinton de Kock, Faf du Plessis, Anrich Nortje and Aiden Markram are must haves for this contest. With Dhananjaya de Silva being another point giving option, your fantasy team is mostly set. Oshada Fernando’s unmistakable talent means he manages to squeeze in while Tahir and Udana are good options to have. Andile Phehlukwayo is a good all-rounder option although you could even pick David Miller. JP Duminy, who is set to play his last home game in ODIs, could also be a good pick to have. Malinga completes the line-up.
Best bet: Markram, de Kock
Alternative: Tahir, de Silva
